    My husband doesn’t care for lotus roots or meat balls. However, when I followed your recipe and combined the two. He liked it. How interesting a simple mix and match can create magic! 🙂 The only thing I didn’t use in the recipe was the salt, because the soy sauces were salty enough for me. Thanks maomaomom!

    Hi Maomaomom,

    I can’t find in the direction what you did with ingredient nr. 4 (¼ cup all purpose flour, 2 tbsp water). Can you help me out?
